OK, so I'm not really providing a suggestion that offers free ning network owners a like-for-like deal. Jomsocial costs $149 in a one time deal.

Thank you for adding your Ning Network to the Ning Directory. In order to maximize attention to your Network, when Community Seekers are searching through our Communities - - please change your Member Name to your Network Name: Fidgetstick. THIS IS REQUIRED TO MAINTAIN MEMBERSHIP. If your personal name and photo are representing your Network, when possible, please add your Professional Title to the end (i.e. Johnny Smith, Musician)! When you change your member name here on the Directory, it should not effect any of your other Ning accounts/networks.
Don't forget to add your Ning Networks to THE LIST. You can add multiple Ning Networks under one member account. Be sure to close Discussion/Listing, if you don't want commenting. Note: Limit 2 Listings per Ning Network.
Also, we have added 20 new Groups, based on Categories. Be sure to add your Network to the appropriate Group. Same guidelines as THE LIST, limit joining 2 of the special Category Groups, per Ning Network.
We have also created a cross-reference Group on Ning Network Creators. This will help in getting us noticed by Network Creators who don't know about us yet, it will help in Search Engine Optimization, AND we will have even more links coming to the Ning Directory and to your Ning Networks. All you need to do, to contribute and be included, is join this Group and add your badge: http://networkcreators.ning.com/group/ningdirectory
I hope the Directory is both rewarding to you and your Network!
FOR THIS TEAM EFFORT TO SUCCEED, PLEASE DROP BY THE SITE OFTEN! LET'S GO TO THE TOP, TOGETHER!
